Peer Mentor Learning Community (PMLC)

What is the Peer Mentor Learning Community?

Welcome to the Peer Mentor Learning Community (PMLC) program!  The PMLC program is offered jointly by Accessibility Services and the Robert Gillespie Academic Skills Centre (RGASC) to support student learning and student community among those registered with Accessibility.  Through interactive workshops, social events, study support groups, and mentoring programs, PMLC engages students in building academic skills and fostering connection.

Delivery Mode

PMLC events will be delivered in-person (UTM campus) during the Fall 2023 and Winter 2024 semesters.


All UTM students who self-identify as having a disability are welcome to attend our PMLC workshops and social events. 
One-on-one mentoring is reserved for students registered with UTM Accessibility Services.

PMLC Initiatives

  • Interactive Workshops

Highly collaborative, activity-based, and hands-on workshops that support students to become active, engaged, independent learners by developing essential academic skills including notetaking, essay writing, reading, test-prep, and time management.  PMLC Interactive Workshops are highly collaborative and hands-on.  Students are strongly encouraged (but not required) to actively participate in the discussion and session activities.

  • Social Events

PMLC Social Events provide students build a sense of community through events such as playing board games, guided meditation, painting, and drawing. 

  • Study Support Group

The PMLC Study Support Group is a place for students to plan, discuss, and achieve their study goals in the company of their peers and mentors.  The quiet study space allows students to work independently, review their lectures, complete their readings, and study for their tests.  Students are also welcome to speak with mentors during the session to inquire about campus resources, academic skills, and tips on how to reach their study goals. 

  • One-on-One Mentoring

Confidential one-on-one sessions between students and mentors, meant to provide guidance on how to navigate university life and meet their personal and academic goals.  Students registered with UTM Accessibility Services are eligible to register for One-on-One Mentoring.  To register for one-on-one mentoring, please complete the webform below, and a member of the Accessibility Services team will follow up with you upon registration.
